Welcome to TykeTrial
Latest News - This web site currently limited to this page.
Dear members past and present.
We are writing to you all to clarify the current situation with regards to what we all refer to as TykeTrial.
As you may be aware the TykeTrial Club is currently managed by a small number of Committee Members who act on behalf of the Directors of Tyketrial Ltd.
The Bad News:
At the beginning of August, the Directors of Tyketrial Ltd, Kerry Seymour and David Smallwood discussed the fact that with the current level of support, the Committee couldn’t fulfil its obligations to the Company, and as such the decision was taken to “dissolve” TykeTrial Limited.
The Good News:
This does not necessarily mean the end of TykeTrial Club, it is hoped that this will bring a breath of fresh air and new ideas.
The current funds and assets of the Tyketrial Limited will be transferred to the Biketrial Federation and will be held in a separate account. The Biketrial Federation management have agreed to distribute these funds and assets to individuals or groups who wish to set up clubs or run events in the North of England.
Hopefully someone will come forward to carry on the TykeTrial Club with new ideas and a fresh leaner approach, but it is also hoped that others may come forward wishing to set up Clubs or run one off events spread across a wider geographic area.
The Biketrial Federation management have asked that any representations to run Clubs or Events should be emailed to them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully if these proposals come in quickly we will have confirmed events to look forward to in the coming months.
Due to the above, the functionality of this web site has been taken down,
